Gamedonia joins expanding GSN Games portfolio

GSN Games has moved to further strengthen its service offering by striking a deal to acquire Barcelona-based mobile games backend-as-a-service developer Gamedonia.

Although financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, GSN did state it intends to utilise the Gamedonia platform to support development across its studios. Gamedonia will now be rebranded as GSN Games Barcelona.

Gamedonia’s team of eight technologists has begun integrating with GSN and will work closely with the GSN Games India studio to implement its backend technology into the country’s game development pipeline.

“GSN Games’ acquisition of Gamedonia aligns with our strategy of leveraging talented teams and advanced technologies to create best-in-class games that delight millions of players worldwide,” GSN chief executive Steve Brunell said.

David Xicota, chief executive and founder of Gamedonia, who will serve as studio director of the newly named GSN Games Barcelona arm, added: “The Gamedonia team brings both leading technologists and a high-performing mobile backend platform with the services and tools required to accelerate game development.

“While this is an exciting change for the team at Gamedonia, we want to reassure all of our existing customers that the Gamedonia platform they have come to rely on for backend and real-time game development will remain the same for the foreseeable future.

“To all of our customers, thank you for helping us grow and improve the Gamedonia platform over the last four years. Now that we are shifting focus to work on GSN Games projects, we will no longer accept new customer sign ups as of today.”

TotallyGaming.com says: “Gamedonia becomes the latest company to join GSN Games, following Plumbee in February and Idle Gaming last year. This ongoing expansion strategy ensures GSN constantly has new services to offer customers.”
